Cybersecurity Factory Acceptance Test (CFAT)

Together with one of the largest providers of industrial automation, a representative for the Canadian end-user, ASaP, successfully passed a Cybersecurity Factory Acceptance Test (CFAT). The CFAT was used to structurally prove the security and functionality of all IT assets within the ASaP LNG Sampler System. Amongst these critical assets were the PLC, HMI, switch, and maintenance laptops.

Secure your process critical assets!

A big part of the CFAT is the LNG Sampler system hardening. System hardening is a collection of techniques and best practices to reduce vulnerability in applications, systems, infrastructure and firmware. The goal of system hardening is to reduce security risk by eliminating potential attack vectors and reducing the LNG Sampler’s attack surface. By removing unused functionalities, user accounts, applications, ports and permissions, potential attackers and viruses have fewer opportunities to enter your process domain.  

The scope of the CFAT

  • System, application, and operating system hardening
  • Network management
  • Switch configuration
  • Verifying application functionality while the antivirus software is performing a full system scan
  • Modbus mapping verification
  • Back-up and restore of all devices and applications

We like to thank all participants that joined remotely from all over the world (sometimes in the middle of the night) and the local team in Amsterdam for their hard work, interaction and compliments in this successful Cybersecurity Factory Acceptance Test.

And what about a remote Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) ?

Save yourself time, money, and the hassle of traveling by planning a Remote FAT for your system. The design of the Remote FAT works to support our engineers, partners, customers, and end-users using virtual testing and witnessing. With Microsoft Teams, multiple camera angles are streamed. In addition portable camera work is provided to see close-ups of the details you want to see. Documents can be shared, checked and signed digitally. In short:
